The Scarlet lyric flubs started early on!
In that 7/19/74 version recommended yesterday, I think Jerry sings, "There's nothing wrong with the way she caught my eye...."

i had noticed that jerry sings both "way she caught my eye" and "look that's in her eye" at points in '74 and, after seeing your post, i got curious about when it changed. so i just did a quick check and found that the "way she caught" line is sung from 3/23 through 7/19, and that it switches over to "look" for the rest of the year. so the song was recorded with the "look" line, but it wasn't sung that way live until almost a month after the album was released. and then at the october winterland shows it switches back to "caught" for 2 of the 3 versions. weird.

Sometimes it even sounds to me like "love that's in her eye"
